Hey Doc,

I have been suffering from recurrent tonsilitis for years now. I just finally saw an ENT 2 months ago and got placed on a waiting list to have them removed. No idea how long this will take. In the meantime, I cannot remember the last time my tonsils were normal size, they are always huge, but do not hurt. But at least every 2 weeks I am sick and taking antibiotics AGAIN! I am very dizzy, ear pain, stiff neck, headahce, stuffy nose, sometimes cough, but like i said, very swollen tonsils at all times but no pain. could this still be causing it? what do you think could be causing all this dizziness?

As much as I would like to help you, Ashley, it would be impossible to blindly determine the reason for your dizziness...there can literally be HUNDREDS of causes of dizziness to consider. I can say that I do not believe the cause is directly associated with your big tonsils, but it could be due to the illness you are having.
